What happens when you go to court after a DNA test is done for paternity??
My problem is my son is also 11 years of age and he has lived with me all his life. His father has never had anything to do with him and we have never done a DNA test until this February. He has denied this child for 11 years now, even though he knows he is the father. My son doesn't want to get to know his father and I can understand why. My sons father is married and they have a child together,and even though we are going for an DNA test, he still says he doesn't want anything to do with his son. I just would like to know what is most likely going to happen when we do go to court???

If the father doesn't want visitation he probably won't get any. If he does you can probably convince the court that the visitation should be phased in as the biological father is a virtual stranger to the child.
You might want child support. It probably will be ordered if requested.
